Black & White (BLW Contributor)

Ricardo Hanley Jr.

“If not for the black of this vast universe would we see the white light of the stars? White pages long to be touched with black ink, thoughts from the spatial mind that sink and climb beyond dark heights and depths, to find illumination for their breath. To dwell in light is to live, though to be in darkness in is not to die. When death reveals itself do we not say walk into the light, if so then how can black be personified as a deathly color? White lies and black plagues, our colors used out of context, called out of their names. The black soil will conceive a sweet white lily that will meet with all other colors, sisters and brothers of the spectrum. The white canvas says not to the black paint; touch me not with your taint. There is no separation in these shades, no spaces…

Spaghetti + Zucchini Recipe. (BLW Contributor)

ORCHIDS + SWEET TEA

Last night’s dinner was one that made me go, “Wow, this is not so bad after all”. Haha! I know, how interesting right? Well, as many of you may know by now, I’ve been going great on my Vegetarian diet and it’s almost been a month! Yay! 

Anyway, although I’ve been keeping up with it, I must say that the temptation has been very upfront and center; and there are moments when I find myself feeling like I want to give up because I’m so use to eating meat (especially Chicken, which has been my ultimate favorite since childhood).

However, I’ve managed to keep going and last night’s dinner gave me hope that It’s going to be OK. I made Spaghetti (wheat by the way) with Zucchini. Personally, I’ve never tried Zucchini before going on this diet and I was rather surprised by how great it tastes. Now, at first…

THE KEY TO CHANGE (BLW Contributor)

1

thevacilando

We often face these situations in life. Situations which urge us to do something new, something different. A new year rolls in, and you plan on transforming yourselves. A new semester starts, and you promise to get better grades this time. You’re celebrating your birthday, and suddenly realize how many years have slipped by. You’ve not reached your potential yet. You can do better than this. And you vow to change.

But change isn’t easy. The older you grow, the more difficult it becomes. Here’s what my experiences have shown me. You don’t initiate change with willpower, you do it with action.

“If nothing around you changes, change the things that are around you.” Tyrese Gibson

Although I lash out against faith time and again, I will say this. Have faith in yourself. Believe in you. Your experiences show that you’ll fail? The odds indicate you’ll fail? Ignore them. They’re…

Marriage or casual sex?

feedthequeen

Here we go again. I am back and ready to commit… To my blog that is.

Let’s jump straight into it. This has been a topic that I’ve been coming across a lot lately. And I’ve been asking myself… Am I a marriage person or a causal sex person? Do I want to spend the rest of my life with one man or do I want multiple lovers from across the globe?

Hmmmm… Both sound kinda good.

But for real, I’m freaking out. I don’t know what I want. Like…. Men are nice and all, but I’m still waiting to meet someone that I REALLY CONNECT WITH. I MEAN CONNECT WITH FULLY, LIKE 100%. I wanna be with someone that I can connect with emotionally, spiritually, physically, mentally and all of that good stuff. And unfortunately people now a days are just too guarded and messed up to even want…

Nordstrom is selling jeans with mud on them for $425

single parent superstar

muddy jeansOn Nordstrom’s website,  you can buy a pair of PRPS Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans for the low, low price of $425. These jeans are unique in that, according to the website, they “…embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”  Ummmm…

The irony here is that most hard-working Americans that would actually do the work that would get their jeans muddy would never buy a pair of jeans for $425.  In fact, this is kind of an affront to hard-working Americans.  And as I see the divide between the richest 1% of Americans and the rest of us who have to work for a living widen more and more, this is kind of an affront to all of the hard working people I know.  I remember one guy I grew up with…

Caked in Chocolate (BLW Contributor)

2

Hi there 🙂

Today we got around to making Eldest his birthday cake!  We used this recipe, and I never hear a complaint from those who try it (I have had a few abstain as they don’t like chocolate, however (!!!) )

Eldest’s fourth birthday cake was made by doubling the quantities of everything and then having fun cutting up bits and positioning them before splopping the icing all over it with abandon.  He loved it, and so did his party guests!

Yum yum!

Today we went for a tame version of the cake, but it was still fun to watch it come together.

Nigella states in the recipe that you can use a food processor, but mine has only successfully made a few smoothies and lolly mixtures…so I use a bowl and a wooden spoon.  The children also help a lot 🙂

Enemies of our soul: Laziness (BLW Contributor)

Laziness is surely an enemy of our soul and can hide in places we don’t realize.
Laziness involves a lack of motivation. I consider myself a hard worker, yet I know that in some ways I am lazy. This is not good.  For example, when I was 15 I started learning to play the guitar. I worked at it so hard, finding time any way I could to practice. It was a top priority in my life.

However, when I conquered the basic chords, I slacked off my practice. In time I learned the chords I needed to play songs I wanted to play, but I didn’t work to learn all of them. I slacked off more and more, then I started to learn the piano. I was the same way with that instrument, working hard at first, then becoming more and more slack in my practice. In fact, after…

10 Ways you can Design Better Interiors by Going Green (BLW Contributor)

Ravenor's

In honor of Earth day (22nd of April), I’m writing this post to spread awareness.. blah. No.

This is not the case here. I am trying to spread awareness, yes, but not just for Earth Day; it’s for the 365 days we have in a year on this Earth. This is the only planet we have, and if we don’t do our very best to coexist with it, it’ll give up on sustaining life and all hell will break loose.

For real, not kidding. #2012 #DayAfterTomorrow

I’ve put together ten ways a Green Design can help your creativity as a designer; how Green Design can be an inspiration, how it can make your process a lot more simple, and make you a responsible human + How a Green Design can make your clients thank you; since designing green is not only beneficial to the planet, but also gives to the…

Hope is a the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson

b91fbd24df0fa6abc812f6f34e3fde70

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul, 

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all.

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chilliest land

And on the strangest sea;

Yet, never, in extremity,

It asked a crumb of me.
